Clementine in the Kitchen: Modern Library Foods (Paperback)
The Chamberlain family spent a dozen blissful years in pre World War II France, with their beloved cook, Clementine, learning the gustatory pleasures of snail hunting in their backyard and bottling their own wine. When war rumblings sent them scurrying Stateside, Clementine refused to be left behind and made a new home for herself in Marblehead, Massachusetts, where she introduced the initially suspicious Yankees to the pleasures of la cuisine de bonne femme. First published in 1943, Clementine in the Kitchen is a charming portrait of a family of gastronomic adventurers, and a mouth-watering collection of more than 170 traditional French recipes. This Modern Library Food series edition includes a new Introduction by Jeffrey Steingarten, food critic for Vogue and author of The Man Who Ate Everything, winner of the Julia Child Book Award.
About the Author
Samuel Chamberlain was the author of nearly fifty illustrated books on European, American, and gastronomic subjects. After living for more than a dozen years in France, he and his family settled permanently in Marblehead, Massachusetts, in 1939. He and his wife, Narcissa, were frequent contributors to "Gourmet" magazine.
"Clementine in the Kitchen is a book of taste memory."
